When you hear the word “Mother,” what comes to mind? The word in itself is strong, forceful, and commanding, while also bringing about a life giving, nurturing feeling. This group of four from the New York metropolitan area encompasses the above and much more. From the stage, Mother is in charge. The energy and confidence is what drives each performance of their heavy, groove-driven aural fix. Meanwhile, the songs will captivate the listener, leaving them searching for more.
In January of 2012, Mother released their debut album “Dissonant Young” to a beyond sold out crowd at The Bitter End. “Dissonant Young” was more than the sum of each of the members. A listener might be able to pick out bits and pieces of individual influences, but as a whole, this is something new. The record flows in a fashion that doesn’t let you turn away. Staples such as “Digital Monster” and “As You Run” pack a fast and heavy punch; while “So Long” and “Out Alive” bring a serenade-like blues feel to the table. When Mother takes the stage, not a soul will leave without remembering that name. Any local club or bar quickly transforms into a stadium sized stage with a sound to match, and everyone in attendance takes notice. Make sure to follow this group and their extensive show schedule as they are breaking quickly and show no signs of slowing down!
